Can anyone help me with history on this photo

So I recently aquired this photo from my father and I am trying to figure out how he came across it. It is 77.5" long and 8.5" tall (just the part that is not covered by the matting). It is a panoramic photo and the building reads "Jones & Laughlin Steel Co. Aliquippa Works - Tube Dep't." There is a title on the bottom center that reads "Twenty Carload of Pipe In One Shipment To One Consignee In Ranger, Texas." In the far right lower corner it reads "Trinity Court Studio (signed by) R W Johnston, 313 Sixth Ave, PGH PA. Aug 17-19". I have looked around online and found some info on both the Steel Co and R W Johnston but am having a hard time finding anything like it or a possible date of production (year). I'd also like to find some history on it before I embark on cleaning this up. Thanks in advance for any info you can provide and I'll get some better photos up as I used my cell for the first.
